Quotes from sweet adeline faq:
what did elliott think about places where i download music (like napster)?
"i like the idea...sure, people should be able to trade musically with each other, i mean people do anyway...there's arguments to be made...but i don't really have an opinion...i'm not one of those bands that sells millions of records and then gets mad at napster"
what did elliott think about bootlegs?
"i think it's nice people want to take the trouble to record music that apparently they seem to like. i don't have any problem with that."
Reported post from Charlie who runs the official site re conversation with Gary Smith, Elliott Smith's father:
"while we were talking, we talked about sharing/trading elliott's music and he thought it was important to mention it was ok to share or trade elliott's music because elliott believed people should be able to trade musically with each other and that the family feels the same."

6/11/04 from Myna Somers:
I spoke to Gary Smith today who is currently making music decisions for
Elliott Smith's estate. He has already announced that the family approves
of trading Elliott's shows. I told him about the internet archive and asked
whether he would support Elliott's music being included. He thought it was
a great idea. What kind of official confirmation do you need from him?
